    We took the scenic "tourist" drive from Akaroa and ended up at a lovely secluded camping site at Okains Bay.

    We had delicious peanut butter sandwiches in the misty mountains, it was heavenly after that hike. Roedolf rescued a tiny hedgehog, that was trying to cross the road on our drive. Okains is clearly off the beaten track for most people, we went for a walk on the beach (like we didn't have enough) and found nothing but heaps of shells and a seagull.

Not exactly perfect to have a cold shower but I did. I will never take a hot shower for granted again. I had a generous glass of port to get over the tragedy, while Roedolf started the Braai.
